says a newly spotted 1,300- wide asteroid not a threat to hit Earth, despite recent media reports.

NASA’ Near Earth program manager Donald Yeomans said the asteroid, discovered in October by Russian , won’t even get that close to Earth in the next 150 . And it ’t a threat to any other , either.

Calculations by NASA and say the closest asteroid 2014 UR116, will get to Earth is about 2.7 million miles in April 2047. Yeomans said that is so far away that it doesn’t make NASA’s running list of risky near-Earth objects.

Yeomans said in-depth analysis confirmed that that the rock would not near Earth soon.
